WATCH: Cian Healy cited after leading with shoulder against Exeter

In their Champions Cup match on Saturday, Leinster came from behind to beat Exeter and remain at the top of Pool 3.

However, they were lucky to finish at full-strength as Cian Healy was only shown a yellow card for this reckless shoulder charge.

EPCR confirmed today that they have received a citing complaint against the Leinster Rugby prop following the incident.

He is alleged to have charged into a ruck and to have struck the head of the Exeter Chiefs hooker, Luke Cowan-Dickie (No 2), with his forearm in the 17th minute of the match in contravention of Law 10.4 (h).

The complaint was made by the match Citing Commissioner, Patrice Frantschi (France).

Gareth Graham (England), Chairman, Rod McKenzie (Scotland) and Leon Lloyd (England) have been appointed as the independent Disciplinary Committee for the hearing which will take place in London on Wednesday, 20 December.
